Get Ready for Every Celeb to Wear This Hideous Color in 2017
Every year, Pantone reveals its color of the year and like clockwork, every celebrity and Insta hottie starts wearing it like itâ€™s their job.
Last year it was Rose Quartz â€” you know, the baby pink color thatâ€™s been literally everywhere â€” and this year itâ€™s a hideous shade of green that Pantone likes to call â€œGreenery,â€ but weâ€™ve nicknamed â€œVomit.â€
Can you honestly imagine wearing that color and feeling confident about going outside to interact with people?
Neither can we.
Emerald green? Sure. Blue green? Absolutely. Pale green? Sure, why not. But this? Greenery may be okay for a golf course, but on a person it’s just… not good.
â€œEmblematic of new beginnings, PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when natureâ€™s greens revive, restore and renew,â€ Pantone said in a statement thatâ€™s not fooling anybody.
Just watch them mix Greenery and youâ€™ll see what weâ€™re talking about â€” does anything about this look refreshing or restorative to you?
More likely, this is just Pantoneâ€™s way of saying that 2017 is gonna blow.
Greenery is the perfect color to describe how we feel about restrictive abortion laws, the rise of emoji snakes, and the fact weâ€™re all about to plunge headfirst into the Donald Trump renaissance.
â€œThe fortifying attributes of Greenery signal us to take a deep breath and oxygenate,â€ Pantone reminds us, as if sensing our skepticism.
And maybe they have a point, but we have a point too.
On the outsideÂ Greenery may be saying,Â “everything is gonna be fine, just breath,â€ Â butÂ on the inside all itâ€™s saying is, â€œbuckle up, partner. Itâ€™s gonna be a bumpy ride.â€
